Great Scottish Run success

Sunday 4 October 2015

photoDr Jim Aiton celebrated his retirement in style by completing his first ever half marathon in the fantastic time of 2:03:33 and coming 28th in his age category in the Glasgow Half Marathon.  Jim was supported on the day by his colleagues Matt Holden & Ruth Cruickshank who he had trained to perfection by encouraging them out at 06.50 every Monday morning for a 4 mile run over the West Sands before work!


Typically Jim decided to raise cash for Children in Need so his team were sporting Pudsey hats, this attracted the attention of the BBC.  Jim kindly shared his training secret with millions of BBC viewers…he was running fuelled on gin!  Jim’s link for donations can be found:
